#### VITAL ####
glossywhite if you eventually get it to flash back to orange please let me know how you did it, im still on xolo having tried to go back to orange using ther tool and ended up in a bootloop :-/
~~ Once the steps below have been taken, you MUST root it before reverting to Orange ICS...~~ ALSO: Ensure, if you are able to access the OS, you enable debugging mode before reverting to Orange ICS.
Right... are you ready for this, dear boy?
1/ Download the Orange
GingerBread dump ---> https://www.dropbox....7/dump.zip?dl=1
2/ Extract the folders inside that dump, to: "C:\SanDiego\tools\system"
once extracted, it should be as below:
4/ Make sure you have the **XOLO** ICS "update.zip"
sitting in "C:\SanDiego\tools\xolo"
folder (on the PC, obv
5/ Power down the handset, and whilst holding down VOL ( + ) *and* VOL ( - ) simultaneously, power it on (let go of power button once it double-vibrates to confirm it turned on
) - keep holding volume buttons until you see a BLUE
, "Tron"-esque android man, THEN let go of them (this is now in bootloader mode)
6/ Open a command prompt, also called a "DOS box" or "CMD", and type:
... then press [RETURN]
7/ Type EXACTLY what you see in the screenshot below: (fastboot.exe -i 0x8087 flash update xolo\update.zip )Your handset will sit in the Tron Android logo for a min or so - the screen may go black - don't panic, it'll still be working. Next, it will reboot itself into recovery mode and finish the process off. Finally, the handset will reboot into the OS - FRESH XOLO JUICE!! ### ROOT IT NOW, THAT IS WHAT WORKS FOR ME - DO NOT PROCEED PAST HERE BEFORE DOING SO ###@@@ CONFIRMED @@@
You definitely need to ROOT before going back to Orange, and once rooted & it has rebooted, you'll need to run the "adbd Insecure" app, tell "SuperUser" to allow it, then in the "adbd Insecure", tick BOTH boxes, then do the Orange cross-grade from XOLO That will get you back to freshly installed **XOLO** ICS, and you can then revert to Orange ICS using the tool. I hope that has been helpful!
